Looking for a recipe

We ate dinner on my birthday at the Kokanee Cafe in Camp Sherman. Before the meal, the waitress brought out a small plate on which she had placed a little pitcher of olive oil and a container of a mixture she called doha. I even asked her to spell it. It had roasted chopped almonds in it, along with some "middle eastern" spices (her words). We were also given some slices of crusty bread. We were told to put some of the olive oil on the bread, then some of the doha - the olive oil was to help keep it on the bread.

Has anyone heard of this? I would LOVE to get a recipe for it.

It sounds kind of like either za'atar or dukkah, although not exactly like either. I don't know, maybe that will help you search? Sounds good though.

I think it was probably dukkah. I love it, but I've never made my own. It's usually a coarse mix of chopped nuts and spices. Good luck finding a recipe!
